Dogs Barking at Shipping VehiclesIt's the diesel! The design of the UPS truck's diesel engine creates a harmonic hum that is very irritating to dogs. It would be the equivalent of nails on a chalkboard continuously to humans. Fed Ex uses a different design to their vehicles, which avoids this irritating sound.

Other answers from our contributors:

  • My dog proudly barks at both UPS and FedEx trucks because he knows I work for the Postal Service!
  • It is something about the brakes or wheels on the UPS trucks. My dog chased every UPS truck and as he started to go deaf the noise drove him crazy. He never caught the truck though.
  • Because they know the devil when they see it.
  • When any kind of car or truck enters a dogs domain it is their natural thing to do is protect their home. By barking or growling. Even some people who are not known to the home may cause the dogs to bark and seeing another dog around their home or a stray cat will cause the dog to bark.
  • Most FedEx and UPS drivers are scared of dogs, because they never know if they are aggressive or not. What they don`t know is that all dogs can sense when a human is scared, happy, excited, or even tired. When they see that the UPS or the FedEx man Is scared that is like a command to them to act aggressive in order to defend their territory from what they see as invaders. FedEx and Ups drivers are usually not known for their love toward animals as a matter of fact every UPS and FedEx man or Woman I have ever seen was mean toward my dog……..Hope this helps

FedEx and UPS are two companies that ship products. Some people prefer FedEx over UPS and vice versa. On average FedEx is cheaper than UPS.

No, not all trucks have beds. An SUV (not a crossover) is a truck. A semi is a truck. A garbage truck is a truck. A delivery truck (UPS, FedEx, USPS, etc.) is a truck.

No. FedEx and UPS will deliver to a residence or a business, but they will not deliver to a vacant lot.

Yes in most cases UPS does service its own fleet of trucks. This is also true with the airplanes tht UPS uses to deliver worldwide.

Normally UPS is less expensive then FedEx if you want there is a calculate rates function on their website to tell you who actually is cheaper and better for your money.

FedEx usually has better shipping rates. They do not charge as much and their reviews are higher than any other company. UPS has had complaints about their handling.

You can ship a package at any of the U.S. Post Office locations, the UPS Stores, or FedEx Shipping Centers. UPS and FedEx have many shipping centers in Nashville TN.
